Linda and Roger's Southwater Downs – Robertson Rainforest


This is a page within Roger and Linda's Southwater Downs Web-Site.

Southwater Downs is an 8-acre property on the escarpment 4km east of Robertson, in southern N.S.W. 3 acres are Robertson (lilli pilli) rainforest, and subject to a Conservation Agreement.

We understand the property's long-term-average rainfall to be about 1700 mm (70 ins) p.a.

The BoM's page for weather-station data offers two nearby stations.

The Pie Shop – Station 068224, 34.59°S, 150.63°E, 735m, at the corner of the Illawarra Highway and Jamberoo Rd, 1.2km south. It's not directly on the escarpment as Southwater Downs is, and hence it's less subject to mists.

This offers patchy readings since 1985, in spreadsheet form here, plus explanatory text. It discloses:

Robertson village-centre – Station 068054, 34.58°S, 150.59° E, 756 m, cnr Illawarra Highway and Caalang St, 3km WSW. This is further back from the escarpment, but with a remnant of Yarrawa forest 400m to the south.

This provides most monthly readings since 1890 (but with a break 1895-2005), in spreadsheet form here, plus explanatory text. It discloses:
